Recess Makes Return to Chicago Schools

Recess will resume in Chicago schools, as part of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s push for longer school days. There’s also growing evidence that links physical activity with academic success.

    Glad the schools are finally figuring this out. I’m pretty sure I would have been hell on teachers without recess and education.

    I’m quite sure overall health of the kids and the sanity of teachers will significantly improve. For more on this check out @exerciseworks

      Oh no doubt about that. I’m sure I would’ve been hell too if I didn’t have recess. I just can’t imagine school, especially elementary school without a little play time.
